3 stars "Hey daddy, can we play that song where there's singing in the start, and then no singing, and then singing at the end?" Yes, that was the name I came to know The Minstrel In the Gallery by. The title track is one of the first Tull songs - or one of the first prog songs, rather - I really got into. This is one of my favourite Tull albums, now that I've finally bought it and heard more than the first track. I find - and this is strictly a personal note - that when I feel cynical, and have the same outlook as Pink Floyd (the character from The Wall, not the band), and all music feels redundant and dry and cold, transparent, and meaningless and nothing seems orchestral poetic beautifulness. It's very easy to get into, and has a lot of funny moments as well. Well done Tull, another great album.
